Beauty dishes fill the gap between hard and soft light sources. They give harder shadows than a softbox and softer shadows than your usual hard reflector. This is down to the bulb cover in the centre of the dish. The bulb cover stops any light direct from the flash bulb which keeps hot-spots to a minimum. Beauty dishes are also known as Softlight Reflectors, ideal for beauty and portrait work.
Our smaller beauty dishes are ideal for single subject portraits while our larger beauty dishes will have a spread of light suitable for group portraits.
